Caption: Lava fountain. A fountain of orange lava spurts out of the active volcano, Mount Kilauea, tracing bright lines against a black background. Mount Kilauea is the most studied and one of the most active volcanoes in world. Located in Big Island, Hawaii, this volcano has been in a state of almost continual eruption for centuries and has produced a near-constant stream of lava since 1983. The lava flows downhill to the sea, where it cools and solidifies into rock, adding to the island. Like the other islands in Hawaii, Big Island is formed entirely from hundreds of thousands of years of lava flows.
